I'm also moving to Plano soon and spoke to one other parent who said that while the schools in Plano are very good, there is much more "social" competitiveness and "pretentiousness" in Plano than in Frisco. I've also been told the student/teacher ratio in Frisco is lower.

We moved to Allen last September, and my daughter goes to Anderson, it is one of the exemplary school in Allen ISD and I found it is very good, but unfortunately that have a new school opening in our neighboorhood and my daughter will be moving there this year along a lot of kids from Anderson. You may want check their latest school boundary.

One thing unique about Plano schools is the high school structure. High school is 9th and 10th only. Then they go to a different school for Senior High which is 11th and 12th. The schools are large, but I am not sure the class size or if there is any difference between Frisco and Plano in class size. I have a son graduating this year and a daughter in 8th grade.

To avoid social competitiveness in Plano, avoid Plano West High School and its feeders. If you don't have a lot of money your child will feel at a disadvantage. Most of Plano is middle class and you should not have those issues in most parts of Plano.

How to pick neighborhoods in Plano or anywhere in Texas? Use the data from the Texas Education Agency.
Go to the link I'll paste below. Select the district and view the district overall assessment, then look at individual school ratings, then go to the district web page and look for attendance zones. Then you can pick a home based on individual school performance.

Plano? Frisco? They both have good schools. So does Allen and Richardson. Drive the streets of the cities. Each city has a very different "feel" to it. Make sure to visit a library in each city you consider. If your child is a high performer, if you think your child might get a National Merit Scholarship, then you might want to give special consideration to Plano. The program for the cream-of-the-crop is very successful in Plano. I live in Plano and I love Plano. I have friends in Frisco, Allen, and Richardson and they are happy too.
